CrackTV - noun - Television shows that you know are bad for you, are amazingly retardedly stupid, yet you watch over and over again involuntarily. The strong kinds of CrackTV prevent you from even changing the channel, or getting up for a drink of water during commercial breaks.

CrackTV represents the sludge at the bottom of television programming. These are the shows you might be embarassed to be caught watching, yet you watch anyways.

CrackTV comes in several major forms. These include:

  • Reality TV - Shows like Survivor, The Real World, etc.
  • Smut TV - Shows like MTV's Undressed. Okay, so there aren't too many of these, but Undressed is horribly addictive
  • Gameshow TV - Gameshows like Strip Poker, Street Smarts, Change of Heart, Don't Forget Your Toothbrush
  • Action TV - Hercules, Xena, Buffy The Vampire Slayer
  • Talk TV - Jerry Springer, Ricki Lake, Sally Jesse Raphael
  • Indeed, CrackTV is an insult to our intelligence, yet it gets the best ratings of anything on the networks. I find myself watching episode after episode of Undressed, embarassingly enough. I'll tell myself "Just one more show.." and pretty soon 5am will roll around.

    Damn CrackTV. I wonder if there's Methadone-ClinicTV out there to help me in rehab..
